NannerPuss: My boss and a coworker were talking about all the guns they were going to buy in the next week if Obama gets re-elected because soon it would be illegal to buy them. Then they fantasized about all the killing they'd do when "they come for our guns".

I normally love and respect these people, but something about politics turns people into brainless goobers.


I hear this on a regular basis.
Normally my friends are just low grade crazy, but politics takes them up several orders of magnitude.

theMagni: It would be hilarious if Obama made a speech after re-election:

"Now that I am re-elected, the secret Muslim programs begin! Allah Akbar!

"Just kidding, I'm introducing a tax break for buying handguns."


legitimate lol. I'm stealing that and putting it on my (R) friends facebook walls.

Mo' derp.

At 6:58pm I got a robot call from the governor of my state encouraging me to go vote for "the Republican leadership team". The polls here close at 7pm.

ami5000: Silly Jesus: 1. Woman on phone at the grocery store. - "Christ is still the King and he has a plan for us. He will cast his vote."
2. Woman behind me in line to vote. - "Votin' is important. I gots to keep my check a comin'."

Guess who each voted for?

I still can't believe that we still allow ignorant / low information / outright retarded people to vote. Hell, a first grade math test would have likely thrown these two wastes of air out of the process.

If we stopped ignorant/low information/outright retarded people from voting then you wouldn't be able to vote and that seems like a shame.

My mom, quietly: "I hope Romney wins. You know, Obama is a Muslim. He wears that ring that proves he is.
And, anyway, I'd rather have a Christian in the White House."

So I sent her links to Snopes, debunking the ring thing, and a link to how Mormon beliefs differ from "mainstream" christianity.

She replied (nicely!) with an email "proving" that Snopes was funded by Obama because of some stuff with Kagan.

I sent her back this, and then we stopped trading emails.

Ann Rand was not a Christian philosopher.

Surprisingly brilliant anti-derp comment.

sgt cyanide: oh for farks sake. letting the liters in is like letting these 'obscure family member[s]' vote

do what i do with my closet republican dad- try to keep them busy until the polls close. mymymy dad the office is busssssssy to-day!


The liters should be allowed to see exactly what the TFD queue has been like all day long.

Its amazing that everyone is biatching about the derp from the right but ignoring the derp on the left about how mitt is evil rich, when a co worker said that earlier I just asked who among to dems are poor, most are richer than you will ever dream of being.

The derp is strong on both sides, but it doesnt matter since both sides are out to fark us, that fact is only obvious to those on the right who distrust their party but still hate the left for their bullshiat.

Believing in honest politicians is like believing in god, there is never proof on either one but people just cling to their chosen side.

The place I work at is also a polling place. It was very busy all day but one comment that was made stood out. The voter stated that they heard on the radio if you vote a straight Democratic ticket it does not count the vote for Obama. When asked if it changed the vote to Romney she said no it just didn't register a vote for anyone in the presidential race.

You regularly show you have no room to talk.


At least I can count to potato.

That's makes them a distant family member, not an obscure one. Do you know what obscure even means? Besides, they're in close enough communication that subby talked to them today.

While it may have kept those two out, crazy cuts across 'plain ol dumb' lines.

I have an uncle. Chemistry degree. Flew nuclear-armed B-52s for the USAF for 20 years.

Also, not just right-wing... actually sees Jesus. Believes in numerology . Sends me DVDs of people drawing diagonal lines around parts of the Greek New Testament that proves that Putin is the antichrist.

phantomht: "im not voting becuz i dont want to get trapped into jury duty"


A friend got that from one of her students. I'm glad stupid people like that don't vote, but they use DMV, Voter, and tax databases for jury rolls. So stupid people will still be on juries.

The biggest heap of derp I saw was in the local news about some leaflets left around a po' folks grocery store reading "due to expected crowding at the polls, Democrats will be voting on Wednesday."

Especially retarded because this whole state is run by Republicans; as if Dems even pose a threat!
 
2012-11-06 07:12:01 PM  
This is the kind of shiat my mom posts to facebook every day:

"We are so close to kicking the muslims and communists out of the White House and Congress...WE CAN DO IT!!! Have them ALL brought up on charges of treason and high crimes!"

"Remember and never forget, obama in his own words said, "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." He has proven it. VOTE HIM OUT then have him arrested & charged with the murders of 4 Americans in Libya and 13 in Ft. Hood."

"If any of my conservative FB friends have XXXX as a friend, you need to seriously talk with this young man about how the muslims are here to destroy us, and their leader is obama."

Every. day.

My father is on a politically-charged Facebook posting rampage, so it's basically business as usual.
 
2012-11-06 07:13:46 PM  
A few choice ones:

1) I did it for my daughters.
2) You can't call yourself a Christian if you vote for the guy who wants to help the rich instead of increase government assistance for the poor.
3) If you vote for Romney, you hate gays.
4) I woke up early today, scared, and got to the polls as soon as I could.


And my personal favorite:

Voting for third party candidates is for the smug and stupid. At least I was drinking heavily back when I voted for Ross Perot.

The amount of fail in that headline is sad.

I got served some derp before heading inside. Didn't remember it all, but some key terms used were:god, god's children, our fair country, choosing supreme leadership & the current corruption eroding our country's faith.

I've got other ones (including all these) from recently, and I have fark notifications whitelisted on my email, so I don't know.

They're often slow but usually not MIA entirely.

I forgot to take a picture of it, but I found a post-it note stuck to a gas pump a few weeks ago that said this:

October 16th, 2007. $1.93/gallon
October 16th, 2012 (that day's date). $3.69/gallon
How is that hope and change we can believe in?

Simple solution. Add "Do you believe that anyone alive currently is the antichrist." If they answer yes...yoink.

My grandmother is convinced that the Virgin Mary predicted at Fatima that a president with "black of hair" would destroy America.

She figures that since Obama is black that must have been who they were talking about.

Last election, I was in our local low-grade food shopping center, and was looking at coffee. Hillbilly man remarks to hillbilly wife in passing "I'm not buying any of that coffee! That's arab ica coffee!". True story.

A woman who worked at Macy's told me last week 'This election is important. One is a Muslim and one is a Mormon.' She then went on to say 'One is a Marxist and one is a Fascist'.
 
2012-11-06 07:21:02 PM  
A volunteer from the Obama campaign called to ask how I planned to vote.
I said, "Green Party candidate Jill Stein."
She said, "Awesome!"
 
2012-11-06 07:21:09 PM  
I voted for Obama because he is black"- Every black person in America

"I voted for Obama because I'm Mexican and want all my family and friends to be given amnesty"-Every Latino in America.

Nothing like cherry picking data, huh? I'd have stuck one next to it that said:
August 18, 2008: $4.20/gallon
Today, $_.__/gallon (fill in the blank) (it's 3.25 today across the street)

My father is a staunch conservative. I'm as liberal as can be. We lead a happy existence together because he hates talking politics. More important to him to talk about good books, good restaurants, his grandchildren, etc. I am so grateful for that when I read threads like this.
